If you sense looming anxiety in the #immigration world, it might not just be the chaos of the southern border. We are also waiting for many, many, MANY shoes to drop...

The final public charge regulation.

The proposed reg was published on October 10, 2018, & comments closed in December: federalregister.gov/documents/2018…

As recent DOS numbers preview, this reg could usher in BIG, BIG changes.
A ruling on the #RemaininMexico (#MPP) preliminary injunction.

A hearing in Innovation Law Lab v. Nielsen happened Friday. The ruling could come out any day now. sfchronicle.com/nation/article…

1/ THREAD: New details on the Trump #remaininmexico #asylum plan out now, and it's so much worse than I was expecting. This is an illegal, immoral, unconscionable human rights disaster in the making. Let's talk about what this is and how it's going to get people killed.
2/ Context: Asylum seekers in Tijuana and other border towns are being "metered" by an illegal system which requires them to take numbers on a list and wait their turn (sometimes months) to lawfully enter the US to seek asylum. This is already bad enough.

3/ Even before Trump, the nativist right was obsessed with the idea of making #CentralAmerican asylum seekers wait outside the US for the many years that it can often take to get these cases to a final hearing. This administration was all too willing to give it a try.

and the Monday shitstorm continues. #DHS has posted a memorandum detailing the #ReturntoMexico process (#MPP) and its is absolutely atrocious. I had to take a baby aspirin while reading it. If you have the stomach... here we go. ..
1. assessment of 'most likely than not' persecution/torture will be made by asylum officers during either primary or secondary inspection. Why? so to deny right to counsel. *Yes. you got it right no counsel will be allowed during MPP assessments.
2. asylum officers could conduct #MPP assessments in person or remotely. Expect bulk via tel or video, which is awful and will undermine the best of claims. It sounds like it will be a total pro forma efforts just to be able to sneak it by courts. expect astronomical denial rate.

For far too long, our terrible laws and bad judicial rulings have forced the United States to allow illegal aliens to live and work in our country while years-long immigration proceedings roll on. That ends today. #MPP
Starting now, @DHSgov is implementing Migrant Protection Protocols #MPP which may require aliens who enter from MX & claim asylum to remain in MX throughout immigration proceedings. 90% of asylum claims are NOT granted by a judge. We want to help those who truly need it.
Over the last 5 years, @DHSgov has seen a 2000% increase in aliens claiming credible fear who’ve been placed in expedited removal, this new policy will allow those w worthy asylum claims the opportunity for their claims to be heard quicker & weed out frivolous/fraudulent claims
